Wedding Website

Recommended Posts

Hello Brides!! I  just started trying to find a (FREE) site where I create a custom wedding website. I began attempting to use mywedding.com because of the cool  app that can be connected with your guests and site butttttt i dont like how i cant place pictures of the resort and adjust them where i would like. I dont like the knot.com layouts either... Ive tried that one too :(

 

Does anyone one know how i can do this on weddings.com OR a better site to use?

I gave up trying to find a free site and ended up paying for one. The free ones didn't do what I wanted and I didn't find a template that I liked.  :(

 

I ended up using weddingwoo.com, which gave tons of flexibility to customize. I am really happy with it. Yes, it was $50 for a year, but it's so little in the scheme of the total wedding cost, I figured it didn't matter too much. Here is our site: http://erinandjeff.weddingwoo.com/. You can use any photo you like for the background. Most people use engagement photos, but since we didn't do an engagement shoot, I used a photo I took during a previous trip to the Mayan Riviera.

 

I hope you find a good free one, though! Please keep us posted.

@@racht33 -Thank you :) I tried lots of free and paid sites. I have about 5 half finished wedding web sites out there LOL. This was the one that allowed me the most flexibility to do what I wanted. But I did spend quite a lot of time on it. I would say it probably takes longer to set this up than some of the canned ones where you are more locked into set pages and a specific template.

Sorry I'm not help. I used mywedding.com and really loved how easy it was to use and how much it did. I only had one or two pics of the resort so didn't need the functionality to move pics around :( hopefully the site suggested to you works!!!! Good luck :)

I found the list of the sites I tried. I'm not sure which ones are free and which ones have a cost, but maybe you'll see some new ones here to check out:

  • Wedding Wire
  • MyWedding.com
  • The Knot
  • WedInvite (more an invitation tool than a web site)
  • eWedding (very limited template options)
  • AppyCouple ($35)
  • Wedding Window
  • Wedding Woo ($50)

I used the knot. Wasn't overly crazy about the templates available, but I liked that it was only $20 for a year and I got my own domain without having the pesky provider name in my domain. It made it alot easier for people to remember.

I used weddingwire but definitely not many opportunities for customizing pictures. I just wanted something quick and easy and that would allow me to keep track of RSVPs on there to group the tables later.

 

My mom has a business and she has a free website through weebly.com. It's free to create a simple website, which is definitely more than you will need. You might have to pay for the domain name though, I'm not sure how that works. Anyways, she loves it and it's pretty easy to catch on. It might take you a few hours of playing around until you get the hang of it but I'm sure you'll be happy with it :)

We used mywedding.com 4 years ago and it worked out fine for us. It's funny because I didn't have any trouble putting pics on it or moving them how I wanted. But at my age 4 years ago is taxing on my memory..... so it's likely I'm remembering it all wrong!!

    • Hi Brides! I have a Wally Bag - 66" available - $90 + shipping (US only) The wally bag typically sells for $120-$180. I used this gown bag once to transport my dress from MN to Mexico for our wedding - IT WAS PERFECT!   I was actually able to pack 4 additional maxi dresses, and my husband's wedding attire, plus a few pairs of shoes and some jewelry. I packed the dress the night before we left, and just moments before we left, I zipped the bag and folded it - ready for travel. It comes up with a nice over-the-shoulder strap, making it really easy to carry through the airports. No issues on Delta with the bag as my carry-on - I chose to put in the overhead bin, but the flight attendant did offer to hang it in the closet for me. Once we got to the resort, about 10 hours after I first folded the bag, I unpacked the bag and my dress was perfect - no wrinkles! My dress was mostly lace and had a bit of a train, but it arrived perfectly!  Honestly, this is the best way to travel with your dress! 
    • we ended up using Facebook messenger when we were in Mexico - the hotel had free wifi and at least 1 person from each family/couple had FB on their phone already - it was pretty easy to communicate among guests "hey, we're heading to the beach bbq for lunch." or "everyone is hanging at the small pool today".  a plus was that some people tried to get a hold of me via FB on the day of the wedding and I was totally not checking my phone - they were asking if the wedding was outside given the rain forecast, thankful my mom, MOH and a few other friends were on the group and could respond for me :)

    • Hi Everyone, So, I was cleaning out my closet and realized that I never sold off my extra wedding OOT bag stuff from our wonderful DW.   46 Daily Spanish for Dummies 30 Pool colored OOT fabric bags - approximately 13in x 13in. They lay flat.  I used them for our wedding and they were perfect for everything we needed to fit in each bag. There’s a slight shade variation in the group; I’m guessing some were cut from a different bolt of fabric.  They are also a little wrinkled from storage and will probably be wrinkled from shipping. I have three additional ones, but they somehow got something on them (likely toddler related). If needed, I can try to wash it out and send those as well.
